Peter Enns brings his genuine tone, sense of humor, personal experience, and academic knowledge to a topic that I couldn’t accurately express before reading this book. The chapters are succinct and cover various aspects that describe the differences between a belief in God that incorporates doubt, and a religious mindset that refuses to engage with the darker themes of God’s word. Enns shows that faith in God is not a certainty of theology, but an avenue in which our trust leads to God.

Rod This trust leads to which God exactly? Certainly not the gods of his mythical liberal bible. So which one? Just curious.
